Jessica Brigham may only be nine-years-old, but she is already making a big difference! Four years ago, Jessica’s little brother was born at Beacon Children’s Hospital six weeks early, in a race against time to saving her mom’s life. Sandy, Jessica’s mom, was diagnosed with melanoma while pregnant. A premature delivery ensured Sandy could start treatment as soon as possible. For a second year, Jessica has raised money from her lemonade stand to help the kids and families in our NICU. We are happy to share little brother Walker, and mom, are doing just fine. Jessica, you are our hero!
